About

Large saw mill lights by Benjamin, circa 1950s - Price is per light (10 available) - Vitreous grey enamel shades - Domed glass reflectors - Aluminium tops - Takes E27 fitting bulbs - Comes with 100cm of gold twist cable - Comes with suspension chain and ceiling hook - Salvaged from a saw mill in South Yorkshire - English, Circa 1950s - 46cm wide x 55cm tall Benjamin The Benjamin Electric Manufacturing Company was founded Reuben Benjamin in Chicago, Illinois, filing its first patent in 1898. The company opened a base in England, as the Benjamin Electric Ltd, in 1908, in Rosebury Avenue, Islington. Bearing in mind that Thomas Alva Edison had only demonstrated the first working lightbulb 29 years previously, it’s fair to suggest that they were at the vanguard of Industrial lighting. Benjamin Electric decamped from London, N1, a decade later, when demand outgrew their facilities, to, of all places, London N17: Tottenham, at Brantwood Road, not a vast leap from White Hart Lane. During the Second World War, despite the factory being bombed, they produced lighting for planes and airstrips. The Brantwood Plant was afterwards rebuilt and expanded, to encompass state-of-the-art laboratory, engineering, administrative and design offices, assembly plant, canteen and social club. By 1960 the company employed 600 people. Condition Report Each light has been completely re wired with modern electrical components, the shades show only very minor signs of cosmetic wear.
